It is with great regret that we have decided to cancel this year's festival. Although we had worked very hard to implement a festival that was COVID safe, the current risk is just too great for us to risk proceeding.
The current syllabus will remain unchanged for 2022, so there is now plenty of time to plan ahead.
Full refunds will be given to anyone who has already sent in their entry forms. Please contact the town council on 01691 680222 to arrange this.
We look forward to happier and healthier times ahead and we hope that 2022.
The dates for next year's Festival will be the 2nd - 6th March 2022.

Oswestry Youth Music Festival goes from strength to strength. It dates back to the Queen's Silver Jubilee celebrations of 1977, it now well established in the County Music Calendar and entries are attracted from Shropshire, Cheshire, Wrexham and North and Mid Wales. Normally held in March of each year the Festival includes a programme of individual, group and school opportunities linked with celebrity concerts. Trophies, certificates and prizes are awarded to competitors and past overall winners of the Festival have gone on to successful professional musical careers.
The winner of the Oswestry Town Council Cup and £200 bursary sponsored by Oswestry Town Council was Harry Fradley.
